What happened

Roadway description: Crosswalk

Your story: I was crossing Lake Shore Drive at the intersection with Jackson Boulevard. When I got halfway to through the intersection on my bike, a driver whom was supposed to turn left onto Jackson Boulevard decided to continue straight onto LSD through the red light and into my crosswalk. The early 20’s girl was on the phone too. I caught up to her and her excuse was… “I am new to the city” I told her if I didn’t have disc breaks then she would have killed me.

Suggested improvements: Submitter didn’t provide
